Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It started out that my 1999 Cabriolet was running really rough with rpms ranging
between 10k to almost stalling while idling. So I did a full tune up (plugs, wires, cap and
rotor) and yesterday it just shut off while driving and won't start. When you try to start it
you get nothing. It doesn't crank or even try to turn over. It just makes a single click. It
has a brand new battery and alternator. I tried to push start it and that didn't work so I
don't think it's the starter. What could it be and how do I fix it?

Did you try replacing or cleaning your Idle Air Control Valve? Did you ever solve the issue?
